Registration Is Now Required

To all our users,

After hosting these forums for close to ten years in an open and anonymous fashion, tonight we were forced to implement a ‘registration required’ policy in an attempt to stop the overwhelming flood of spam we’ve been receiving.

It is our hope that eliminating the spam will be worth the effort required. Thoughts and feedback are welcome.

so i’ve noticed a significant increase in spam lately on the board from “registered users”… is there any end in sight?! it’s such a shame to have these forums spoiled this way… maybe by implementing on of those “codes” to enter from a garble image to prevent bots from posting?
